Hobie Mirage Outback

The Hobie Mirage Outback brings a fresh new design to their top selling fishing kayak. Stacks of stability, an efficient hull design, unbelievable seating comfort, fully loaded with the latest fishing features and all powered by the incredible Mirage Drive 180 with ST Turbo Fins. Hobie have just set a new standard amongst pedal-drive fishing kayaks!

Designed to be the perfect all-rounder for both fishing and general touring, the Outback has a hull which performs well on both inland waterways and inshore coastal waters. The stable hull design provides a comfortable platform to fish from all-day long and the new efficient bow pierces well through wind and chop whilst reducing hull slap. The Outback is propelled through the water using the revolutionary Mirage Drive 180 system - full power pedal drive in forwards and reverse! Switching between forwards and reverse is as simple and easy as pulling a toggle on the drive system. Steering is easy as well with the integrated kick-up rudder and steering controls found on both sides of the seat, allowing you to manoeuvre in and out of the tightest of spots.

The super comfortable Vantage CTW seat ensures you will have comfortable ride. Fully adjustable and supportive, you really can be out all day.

A large bow hatch will take plenty of gear and has enough space for fold-up trolleys such as the Railblaza C-Tug. The Outback also comes fitted with the Hobie Guardian Transducer Shield - a retractable transducer mount for your fish finder keeping it well protected during launch/landing and transport. Fitted Thru-Hull Cable Seals for the fish finder wiring makes fish finder installation easier than ever on the Outback.

Everything is just where you need it with Rubber Mesh Storage Pockets making a handy place to store small items of gear. There are also tool holding notches present - ideal for keeping your scissors handy. There is stacks of storage space on this kayak with a large rear cargo area which will easily hold a Hobie H Crate. Accessories tracks are also found at the sides of the rear cargo area - perfect for mounting camera poles/booms, safety flags and lighting poles.

The Outback is also supplied with a 2-piece fibreglass paddle, in case you fancy exercising your arms.

The superior stability provided by the Outback’s hull design allows for stand-up fishing and casting on calm waters. EVA Foam Standing Pads are fitted either side of the centre hatch to give a grippy level surface for standing.

This is possibly the best-equipped and most well thought-out fishing kayak ever for all-round fishing on coastal and inland waters.


MirageDrive 180 V2 With Glide Technology & ST Turbo Kick Up Fins (2021 Model) - Providing speed & efficiency to the Outback, the Mirage Drive 180 V2 is Hobie's flagship drive system that features Hobie's patented, larger ST Turbo Kick Up Fin Technology for care-free kayaking as well as full power forward or reversing pedalling with the pull of a toggle!
